Dog-Friendly Trail + Restaurant Pairings

Nicole Wheatley - April 22, 2024

Visiting Wicomico County with your dog(s) and looking to adventure together? We've paired some of our favorite trails with nearby dog-friendly restaurants.

Pemberton Historical Park + Brew River Seafood House + Dock Bar

Pemberton Historical Park is a local favorite comprised of 262 acres and 4.5 miles of trails. Along the hike, you'll find tidal and fresh water wetlands, fresh water ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows.

Just an eight-minute drive from Pemberton, stop by Brew River Seafood House + Dock Bar. Their Dock Bar, which is dog friendly until 10 p.m., opens in early March and closes "whenever the weather forces people indoors."

WinterPlace Park + Tall Tales Taphouse

WinterPlace Park is located right off of Route 50 and has 3.2 miles of wooded trails. The trails are easy to navigate but are not marked, so bring your GPS-enabled phone... just in case. 

Tall Tales Taphouse, known for its fire roasted menu, craft beer selections and outdoor dining area, is located six minutes east of WinterPlace.

Naylor Mill Forest + Burnish Beer Co.

For a more rugged hike, try Naylor Mill Forest, home to five miles of biking-hiking-running trails created by locals. You'll even find some hills, a rarity on the Eastern Shore. Naylor Mill is Salisbury's last remaining old-growth forest, with giant red oaks that are over 100 years old.

After you emerge from the forest, drive two minutes to Burnish Beer Co.'s craft brewery, bar and restaurant. Sit outside with your pup and enjoy sixteen rotating beers on tap, wine, cocktails and full lunch and dinner menus.

Salisbury City Park + Evolution Craft Brewing Co.

Salisbury City Park's popular walking trail surrounds Park Lake with plenty of tables, benches, pavilions and shade along the way. 

Evolution Craft Brewing Co. is a two-minute drive from City Park. Evo's expansive dog-friendly outdoor area is a great place to enjoy "ever-better beer for ever-better food."

Roaring Point + Boonies Burgers, Beer + Bait

If you have time, take the 30-minute drive to Roaring Point Park. We promise it's worth the hike. The park is tucked away along the Nanticoke River, secluded by dense trees and wildlife. A short path through the wooded area leads to an 0.8 mile stretch of beach.

Eight minutes up the road, dine on fresh seafood, burgers and hand-tossed pizza on the deck at Boonies Burgers, Beer + Bait.
